Believing the Promises of God - in His Word

Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… Without weakening in his faith… Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. ~ Romans 4 [selected 18-21]

My dear friend, Eileen, stepped onto the shores of heaven late this afternoon and into the Presence of Jesus! I'm sure that Bob was there to greet her as well! That gives me great comfort! Just after I got the news - I stepped outside and took these pictures - all around me. God is awesome! It's like He painted the sky for her home going!

The first photo is from the western sky... the moon is in the northern sky - so cool - all taken at the same time!
I put these words over the criss-cross sky picture - it almost looked like the 'star of David' to me:
COME TO THE MOUNTAIN - song by Mark Harris
Someone's calling you today... He says come away,
Stand in His Presence...drink in His glory,
Come and rest your soul... come and be made whole.

Come to the mountain... come join the chorus,
Worship the LORD...
He is mighty and glorious!
Come drink from the fountain,
Come to the mountain!

The verse that the LORD gave me for Eileen today is:

2 Corinthians 2:14-15a

But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ...

Eileen was a living testimony - a sweet aroma of Christ! She trusted Jesus through every step of her journey and He has brought her into His glorious light! He brought her HOME and into His Presence!

Now Eileen has received the "Promise of New Beginnings!"

Choosing JOY,
